Stupid people stuff

20 Aug

“A year ago, my wife, Brooke, and I joined colleagues for dinner at the Sea of Galilee in Israel. After dinner I followed some Members of Congress in a spontaneous and very brief dive into the sea and regrettably I jumped into the water without a swimsuit. It is my greatest honor to represent the people of Kansas in Congress and [for] any embarrassment I have caused for my colleagues and constituents, I apologize.”

Republican Representative Kevin Yoder of Kansas.

During a fact-finding congressional trip to Israel last year, Yoder took off his clothes and jumped into the water, joining a number of members, their families and GOP staff during a night out in Israel.

Everyone else kept their clothes on.

This according to an article in Politico.

More than 20 people, including the daughter of another congressman, got involved.

Yes, booze was involved.

While we’re pointing out dumb things:

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Republican Representative Todd Akin of Missouri in a TV interview justifying his opposition to abortion even in cases of rape.
